    Our vision focuses on reaching people who are lost without Jesus, raising up fully devoted followers of Christ and releasing these followers to do God’s work.

    In a very real sense, “we have no creed but Christ, no book but the Bible.” The twin basis of our unity is our faith in Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the Living God, and our adherence to the Bible as the inspired text for our teaching and the one sufficient constitution for governing congregational life.

    We believe that it’s really tough to grow spiritually unless we are connected relationally. That’s just the way God made us. Life change happens best when we are in community with others.
